LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Eduardo Perez’s pinch-hit homer with one out in 11th inning lifted Cincinnati to just its 10th win this season.

Reds reliever Mike Remlinger worked out of a one-out, bases-loaded jam in the bottom of the 11th for his first major-league save.

Perez, batting for winning pitcher Jeff Brantley (1-1) hit a 2-2 pitch from Mark Guthrie (1-1) into the right-field seats for his first homer of the season.

Cincinnati, which blew a 2-1 lead in the ninth when Raul Mondesi homered, won for just the 10th time this season.

The Dodgers nearly pulled it out in the 11th before Remlinger struck out pinch-hitter Nelson Liriano and popped up pinch-hitter Eddie Williams for the final out.
